A 69-year-old man was struck and killed Saturday (February 11,2017) by a hit-and-run driver in South Los Angeles

A 69-year-old man was struck and killed Saturday (February 11,2017)  by a hit-and-run driver in South Los Angeles, according to police. The crash occurred at 6:20 a.m. in the area of Broadway and 49th Street, said Officer Irma Mota of the LAPD’s Media Relation Section.
The pedestrian was crossing the street westbound at Broadway, when he was struck by a vehicle going southbound on Broadway, Mota said. The driver fled the scene. Paramedics rushed the man to an area hospital, where he later died from his injuries, she said. Grainy surveillance video provided footage of the crash, showing the driver of a dark colored vehicle that did not stop.  Officers watching the footage said that the vehicle looks like a minivan or a small SUV with possible work done on the bumper. A second driver — who failed to stop — is seen driving past the victim. Detectives from the LAPD‘s Central Traffic Division asked anyone who saw the crash to call them at 213-833-3746.
